    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Virginia.

    Interview

    I met with three people and HR. Formal process with very standard interview questions. They were friendly but the 2 interviewers interchangeably asking questions made me nervous. Drug screening and shots required. Personality profiling and "If then" situation questions required as well.

    Statistical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at University of Virginia in June 2013.

    Interview

    Several experts of the candidate searching team interviewed me via phone. After a brief introduction, they told the phone interview will take about 15 minutes. They only asked three questions. It looks simple. The three questions are no difficult. I spent a couple of days to prepare it. But I don’t know why I was so nervous since the 2nd question. For the last question, I did not well respond to it. After the interview, I felt so bad. I believe I this position fit me perfect and I can do it very well. But the interview was so bad. As a result, I did not get the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Virginia.

    Interview

    Skype interview, followed by an in-person interview with a panel from the office. The in-person interview included a 5 to 10 minute presentation about a topic of my choosing. It wasn't too intimidating of an environment, rather a group of people who are looking for you to succeed. I think by the time you get to this point, you're an application they are excited and hopeful about.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlottesville, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Virginia (Charlottesville, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The hardest part of getting hired at UVA is getting past the application process to get an interview. They are the largest employer citywide and everyone wants to work there. I actually got my foot in the door by speaking with a recruiter at a job fair and applying for jobs with UVATemps. UVA has its own Temp division. I dressed professionally for the job fair and treated it as an interview.
    I got a call back a few weeks later about the job. HR had to verify my past employment and spoke with all of my references. I went to the HR office and filled out paperwork and spoke with a different HR rep about the position. I was then able to interview with the hiring manager.
    The interview with the hiring manager was really brief and consisted primarily of her telling me about the position. The job is in the Health System (UVA has a teaching hospital) and I believe she was quite busy and just wanted to make sure I was a dependable intelligent person before signing off on the hiring. This is for a four month position- not a permanent one. I answered a few questions about how my past work experience provided me the skill to complete the job and that was about it. I can't remember if we walked through the office and met people that day or not.
    I got a call later that they wanted me to start right away so I did.

    • It was more of her describing the work to me, and my saying "Oh, that's like XYZ that I did at my old job" than asking questions.   Answer Question
